SPRING 2022 COVID-19 PROTOCOLS

This document (linked above) is to provide guidance and information for Brevard College to open with confidence in January 2022. The primary goal is to protect our community while providing class grounded in experiential education. This is a living document and will change as the situation and guidelines for COVID-19 changes. The college will follow the recommendations of the state of North Carolina and the CDC.


VACCINES

Effective immediately, Faculty and Staff are required to be vaccinated with more information coming from Human Resources. All students will need to be fully vaccinated by January 2, 2022. More information for students will be sent from Campus Life.
